Here is another drawing from a pile of old family pictures. Don't know if it's by a well-known artist or not, or anything else about it. Any thoughts?
Hirschberg was a cartoonist, who drew a large piece fo the first page of the NYTimes theater section. It would deal with contemporary events in the arts, eg. plays, He would hide the name of his daughter, Nina, in every drawing. I'm no expert. but your picture looks like it could be one of his. You should take it to a gallery or an exoert for an appraisal.
You’re thinking of Al Hirschfeld, lizziecat.
Jasmo, I tried a couple of artistic Hirschbergs that came up in a Google search — an Alice looked promising — but neither the styles nor the signatures were matches.
Also tried some variants, in case that doesn’t really spell out Hirschberg, but also no luck.
Thanks so much for trying!
I love that drawing & want to meet the ladies (gentle faces) and see what their hats are made of.

You can look it up in AskArt for free, although you have to pay for access for more information. Looking at Hirschberg, I don't see anything by the same hand. Google showed an Alice Hirschberg and that seems possible. You may want to call up Swann Galleries and see if they'll look at it.

Not to get to far off topic, bu wow, I loved that music. Put me in mind of one of my old favorite groups: Three Mustafas 3.
